KEW GARDENS — A homeless man was convicted last week of strangling a friend underneath an overpass of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, the Queens district attorney said.
It took the jury two days to find Michael Bohan, 47, guilty of second-degree murder Oct. 13, DA Richard Brown said. On Sept. 6, 2008, Bohan was fighting with Carol Ann Christensen-Stenson, 59, under the roadway and he beat her, stabbed her in her torso and finally strangled her to death, according to the DA.
Bohan’s common-law wife called 911 and when officers arrived at the scene, they found the suspect sleeping next to the woman’s body with her blood on his pants, Brown said.
Queens Supreme Court Justice Richard L. Buchter scheduled a sentencing date for Nov. 1, in which Bohan faces up to 25 years to life in prison.
